Maria Pina Usai
Architect / Landscape Designer

Attracted by the dynamics of interaction between landscape, architecture, art and society, I work in the field of strategic planning for sustainable development of territory and integrated planning for the rehabilitation of architectural heritage in coastal areas.

After graduating, I worked extensively between Genoa and London, and I obtained the Master Extraordinary Landscapes | art landscape architecture at the Milan Polytechnic and Naba Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti, with a thesis entitled “Greetings from Platamona | a design strategy for a landscape in movement”.

In 2006 I founded Linkinart - art | architecture for urban regeneration, multidisciplinary platform for applied research on the territory.

Since 2008 I have been a member of Paesaggi Connessi, with which I won the Landscape Award of the Sardinia Region for the project Ecorurality.

From 2007 to 2009 I was tutor of the Architectural Design Laboratory I and II at the Faculty of Architecture of Genoa, held by Prof. Arch. Donald Hart [RPBW | Genoa].

Since 2010 I have been collaborating with the Conservatory of coasts of Sardinia, developing several European projects in the Mediterranean basin aimed at improving coastal conservation and rehabilitation.

In 2011 I founded the multidisciplinary group U-BOOT research and action on landscapes with high social and environmental vulnerability, active between Cagliari, Genoa, Milan and Bologna.

Since 2015 I'm a member of the board of directors of MEDSEA Mediterranean Sea and Coast Foundation, whose aim is to contribute to a fair and sustainable future for the people living in the Mediterranean by promoting the conservation of marine and coastal ecosystems and cultural heritage.
